Epson Printer Paper Jam

Epson Printer Paper Jam

Step 1.
Make sure your printer actually has run out of paper first. It never hurts to double-check because it can occasionally be simple to forget your paper levels and there might be a piece of paper that got stuck in the printer.

There is another problem option if you recently printed label sheets. Small pieces of adhesive label material frequently rip off and get jammed in your printer, gathering dust and clogging it. Get a flashlight, turn off the printer, and try to see inside. Before continuing, make sure that your printer is free of label fragments. To remove any loose paper or other debris that might have become lodged inside the printer, you might need to look below it and shake it out.

Step 2.

When the likelihood of a foreign object causing the jam has been ruled out, you should focus on the printer’s sensors. If printer sensors are broken, error messages may be sent. Fortunately, HP printers don’t have a lot of sensors, so you should be able to pinpoint the issue quite quickly. The paper feeding is detected by two sensors in the back. A door sensor and a sensor that determines the location of the printhead are located in the front.

The printhead’s location is measured using a clear piece of tape. The printhead scans tiny markings on the tape to establish its location. As an illustration, if the printhead tape is dirty and it believes it cannot travel to the left, it will believe there is a paper jam impeding its movement.

A tray sensor is the first sensor at the back. This sensor’s lever will be pushed by the paper tray, mechanically causing a transfer to the left. If you tilt the tray inward, ensure sure the lever moves forward. You should check that the sensor and lever in that location are operational because the paper tray is mentioned in the paper jam problem message.

Step 3

If even one component of an over-engineered lever assembly is slightly misaligned, it can prevent the lever from moving all the way forward. A piece of circuit board with two slots holds the lever in place. These slots each have two functions: paper ejection and tray insertion. The sensor will be released if the tray lever advances and exits the slot. But even if it doesn’t advance straight ahead, it will still block the sensor and cause a printing error. Of course, the board itself might be broken even if everything else is physically sound.

The paper ejection sensor, the second sensor, is managed by a lever in the centre. This lever will be raised by paper, however once it is taken down, the lever returns to its original position. If after being elevated, it doesn’t come back down, there is a problem.

Step 4

You should now take out your T10 and T6 screwdriver bits. You may get these at your neighbourhood hardware shop. Remove the eight screws on the front of your printer using your T10 bit. The scanner hinge should come out with a simple forward push, giving you quick access to the four extra screws running along the back.

Step 5.

Now that the cover has been loosened, you can lift the left panel up straight. Remember to pull from the front, which should be identified by a blue tab, when disconnecting the large cable along the side. The duplex cover can be removed to show a black lever. The roller can now be removed if you pull this lever to the left.

The paper ejection lever is what we’re ultimately attempting to access in this stage, and the metal piece on top is the sole obstruction at this time. Continue to use your T10 to remove the four screws, then just take the lid off. Simply press it firmly down until you hear a clicking sound to reinstall it.

Step 6.

You can now pull the lever out after moving the cover. A spring that loads and unloads for each page is a necessary component of a lever that is working properly. You’ll see that the hook of this spring broke off on a faulty lever, probably from misuse. It can occasionally catch the lever because of this. You occasionally see a paper jam error as a result. You can repair or rewire the spring if you don’t want to go out and buy a replacement part.

Step 7.

But what if the paper lever sensor is not the issue? If so, we’ll need to get access to the circuit board and perhaps the tray sensor as well. Lift the scanner straight up after disconnecting the scanner’s large and tiny cords. It ought to simply peel off.

You can see two little springs on each side of the printer if you turn it over. They are carrying a larger plastic component. They should be removed and put aside. The plastic cover ought to now be easy to snap off. To reinstall, just snap this cover back on.

You will notice a black component poking out in the centre if you turn your printer back over. Break this piece off by bending it. You can take out and reinstall the entire unit, enabling you to print happily ever after. But if you don’t remove this part properly, it will break.

The entire black plate serves as a stabiliser for the axle that this component revolves on. It needs to hold onto a small, black box with a hook on the rear. Pull up your axle while holding the black box to view this. When we push this forward with an even effort, it won’t break. You can only put uneven pressure on it and run the danger of shattering it. Keep an eye out for the possibility that your angle is not straight because the entire black board is loose.

Step 8.

By cutting the cable, you may now remove the entire board. The tray sensor will be visible after this step. If the electronic board needs to be replaced, replace it with a new one. In essence, the installation is the opposite of what we just did.
